Can I Boost Wireless Connection?

Hi, Ive just bought a brand new Sony Vaio A Series laptop. It has built in Centrino. It keeps on losing my wireless network connection, (I use a WAG54G). Ive got an older Dell laptop that has no problems staying connected.

Can anyone suggest a way I could boost or increase the connection quality?

Thanks

take it back! if the wireless device is a card try removing it and putting it back in. If otherwise return it from whence it came.

Hi, I would advise following howard60's suggestion. If you 'fiddle' you will lose your warranty. Best of luck.
